Monica Garcia, a former El Paso cop, was sentenced to 2 years in prison on Thursday for her role in a cocaine distribution conspiracy.

Garcia, according to court papers, colluded with her stepfather and co-defendant Fred Saenz to disperse cocaine from Saenz’s home.

Federal agents discovered that Saenz was storing and distributing cocaine from his home and a different stash location.

Prosecutors claimed Garcia used her role as an El Paso cop to provide information that would help Saenz remain undetected while distributing cocaine.

Her tasks included counter-surveillance and running license plate registrations in order to determine deep cover police cars near the house and stash spot.

Agents seized $14,405 from Saenz’s home and 1.2 kilograms of cocaine from a stash house on November 10, 2020.

During the investigative process, undercover agents purchased cocaine from Saenz at his residence.

Saenz pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute more than 500 grams of cocaine on July 26, 2021. He was sentenced to 42 months in prison and ordered to forfeit $14,405 from the drug conspiracy on November 1, 2021.
